Mattiazzi Branca Stool
Sam Hecht and Kim Colin, 2014
The Branca Stool combines the precision of technology and the warmth of hand craftsmanship. As with its chair and table counterparts, the design found inspiration in the way tree branches (“branca” in Italian) bend, meet, and branch. The stool’s slender wood legs join and cross to support a contoured seat, and extend upward to form a supportive backrest. A curved metal footrest replicates the outline of the seat. Available in two heights, the stool comes in chocolate brown/natural anilin ash, green anilin waxed ash, natural waxed ash, white anilin ash, and black anilin ash; the painted footrest comes in a choice of black or white.
